Three Handsome Briefcases

Well, if these vintage briefcases were men, there’s only one word to describe them – handsome. Sturdy and well put together, you just know you’ll be able to depend on them for a long time (not to mention that rough-around-the-edges charm we all love!) ūüôā

We’ll even wrap it up for you in our special “nostalgic” packaging!

Come and choose from a good variety of designs.

Bags, bags, bags!

We’ve made full use of our new space and filled it with bags you love. Recently, we noticed our cosmetic/train cases have been used creatively as ang pow (red packet) holders at weddings. The red ones are the perfect auspicious colour for that! And I can just imagine red Double Happiness stickers on the white and green ones ūüôā

Simply love old leather bags, especially this one, which looks like something a Victorian-era doctor might carry.

Gift Guide Part 3

With the train distruptions recently, we’re glad to say that the shop is extremely accesssible by bus and car =) Well, it comes with being along¬†one of the¬†main expressways in Singapore, the Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE), which leads all the way to the east of Singapore with hardly a traffic light in sight.

So if you’re giving the downtown areas a miss, shop vintage at our small but bustling (and bursting) store!

As we hurtle towards Christmas (yes it’s going to be that fast), consider these Christmas gift ideas.

 

A set of six amber glasses, new in the box!

For those trendy folks, geek-chic spectacle frames made of good-quality acetate. As these are vintage pre-loved pieces, we took out the original lenses so everyone can wear them =)

I think my uncle wore these in the 70s.

Swank vintage belt buckles (Great gift idea!)

 

Our latest addition to the swanky Swank family of accessories for men – the belt buckle. Made of solid brass and plated so that they will never rust (ever), these buckles are truly beautiful. They were designed for men but we reckon that women will love them too because of their slimmer widths.

The best thing is – you can personalise your own belt!

1. Choose the buckle (your own initial or name!) 2. Choose the colour and type of leather. 3. We’ll do the rest!

Your belt will be made of 100% genuine quality  leather and put together by local craftsmen. We have several options, including calf leather, for your selection.

Prices range from $50 to $90 (depending on quality of leather). Please give us 1-2 weeks to fulfil the order.

From now to the end of the year, we’re offering 10% off each belt, plus a special gift box so you can present it as a truly unique gift to a loved one.

Come down and take a look! These pictures will give you a better idea.

Your selection of buckles

Two types available – initials and names.

Alphabets available are A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, J, K, L ,M, N, T, R, P and W.

Names available are Bill, Bob, Charles, David, Dick, Ed, Frank, George, Harry, Henry, Jack, Jim, Joe, John, Paul, Ron, Tom and Walter.

Don’t forget our cufflinks! (gift wrapping available)

Red Star Style

I admit, I know next to nothing about Russian culture or design, but there’s just something about communist-era design that appeals so much to me. Maybe it’s because it’s so bold, plain and direct. Something that shouts and calls to attention¬†immediately – no-nonsense communication. If only all design can speak to us so clearly.

It’s hip to be kitsch, pin one of these Russian military badges on a serious-looking blazer and see¬†your outfit ¬†pop to life. They’re on sale now at $5 each.

Russian badges

A closer look

The ‘badge’ on the first row is called a Everyday Cockade, to affix on the band around the officer’s cap. That’s why you see two flaps that bend out from behind.

The badge with the ‘2’ is an Armoured Qualification badge – 2nd Class.

They’re also great on a beret.

And if your ears are feeling cold, here’s a big woolly cap with ear flaps.
